Window One Workshop


The country-level programs supported by the GPF all feature governance as a key starter for development effectiveness.  The Window One Workshop (WOW) brought together nearly 100 participants including field-based Bank staff, sector specialists, and senior management.  Over 3 days in Cape Town the group shared feedback on the impact of the Window 1 projects, good practice that has developed, and lessons that have come from operational experience in governance. Strong focus was put on the relationships and learning that enhance the impact of such a significant paradigm shift.
